Making SQL Server Highly Available

Making SQL Server Highly Available

Customers today need their SQL data to be highly available. With technologies built into the current versions of SQL Server, highly available databases are easier than ever to achieve.

Making data highly available has progressed through a series of technologies in SQL Server. So, let’s rewind for a minute while I explain how. Prior to SQL 7.0, Microsoft and Sybase worked together in a joint effort to produce a relational database which allowed database mirroring. This proved to be extremely cost-consuming on resources, and therefore when Microsoft broke away with their own version of SQL Server in 1998 they removed the ability to mirror databases. While industries still needed to have data highly available, Microsoft released several technologies to make data redundant.

How Microsoft Solutions Can Help Identify Your Leaked Credentials

How Microsoft Solutions Can Help Identify Your Leaked Credentials

Hackers are dedicated to getting into and compromising your systems. They can use sophisticated coding techniques to get around or break through your security defenses. Unfortunately, many times that type of extensive effort isn’t necessary because organizations make it easy for hackers to steal credentials by failing to have adequate defenses in place.

Nearly two out of every three confirmed data breaches involve weak, default, or stolen passwords.1 In total, according to Microsoft, tens of millions of credentials are exposed every month and are added to growing lists on the dark web. These stolen user IDs and passwords are extremely valuable to cyber thieves since three of every four users re-use credentials across multiple sites and continue to use the same credentials for years.2

SQL 2000: Out of Date But It's Not Too Late

SQL 2000: Out of Date But It's Not Too Late

If you’re still running SQL 2000 or SQL 2005 in your environment, you probably already know about the significant support costs. And, I would be willing to bet that your Security team is telling you that it’s a considerable risk that needs that must be addressed. The team that oversees applications is also probably telling you that these systems can’t be upgraded because they are 32-bit systems and won’t run on the newer 64-bit platforms. To top it off, the business tells you that the vendor won’t provide support on the new platforms or your host will charge a considerable fee to allow you to run the outdated versions of SQL on their servers.

When thinking about what you need to do, do you feel like you have only two options?

Microsoft Teams: Collaboration in the Modern Workplace

Microsoft Teams: Collaboration in the Modern Workplace

For any organization, it is incredibly important to have a system in place that enables employees to be efficient and productive. In most cases, employees take it upon themselves to use applications, usually unknown by the organization, to help manage their tasks and collaborate with their teams more efficiently. This presents a big issue for organizations because their employees use unauthorized and potentially unsecured applications, which can result in the data leakage of secured documents. So, how do you enable your employees to collaborate effectively while making sure they are productive? Microsoft has you covered with their approach to the Modern Workplace and their integration of products such as Planner, OneNote, SharePoint, and many others into their collaboration tool Microsoft Teams.

So, what is Microsoft Teams? If you have not already read our blog Microsoft Teams | A Hub for Teamwork in Office 365, it's Microsoft’s new chat-based work space in Office 365 that brings conversations, content, and people together, all in one place, so they can easily collaborate more. It truly feels like the future of workplace collaboration with everything you need built right in.
